The guy who used maps to stitch a whole big map out is respect,that takes a lot of work just travelling the whole Minecraft map,and eventually coming back to that area,and even,placing the map one by one,at the right order...

It's not as hard as it seems, could be done within 1-2 hours with an elytra

1:14 i actually made something very similar to that on a server im in. me and my friends love the band animal collective so me and another friend of mine built a map art of the album merriweather post pavillion which is pretty much the same pattern shown but in a different scale. it had the visual effect! it was super cool and reminds me how worth it doing all that in survival is.
I’m probably gonna make the giant house

Idea: Using the void illusion (The one with the black blocks) and a redstone timer you can make the illusion of a monster blinking and staring at you

I like how he says "barely cut it" with the beacon despite still keeping 80% of the netherite blocks

The "illusion" with the three block never fooled me. I always wondered why someone would just randomly place blocks like that.

After watching this I finally figured out what the three sea lanterns in the corner of the ceiling illusion made the actual illusion part. Neat.
buttertoast_ Year ago
I don’t know if this works on Java but you can just do a 3x3 square of something for a beacon and it still works

That biome Color map would be a good feature to have to be able to manual place wherever you want. Just imagine the options it opens up.

5:04 for an even better illusion, use cpmmand blocks to make it seem like you’re falling a long way and structure blocks with zoomed in maps to make it actually seem like your falling if you decide to jump in Edit: I made one typo and i have 61 replies correcting me wtf

In bedrock you can still do the portal to the "Eather" with the structure void block

Hey skip. I have a little thing that can spice up a party room in Minecraft. If you build a repeateting machine with redstone and place a dispenser and fill it with fireworks. Then make the floor slabs (the slab must be the upper side and not have the lower side) and then boom activate the redstone reapeating machine and there you have it. A little thing just to build for fun. I don’t care if this doesn’t get in a vidio I’m just glad that I could come up with that and suggest it to you.
geekqueen2010 Year ago
Large scale builds fir details you can't get normally in Minecraft, then use Immersive Portals mod to make the player bigger when they enter so they can't tell it's a giant room

For the budget Netherite Beacon trick, you'll still need a TON of Netherite blocks to even do that tho.
great idea for a new video:make a hut out of slaps and trapdoors with trees outside and flowers inside an a bed with some others things with the door as a painting with moss hills and grass and a cave that is pretty and a path

Epic illusions, thanks for that azelea leaves trick, it will be so helpful when building custom trees in deserts, savannas etc.... Edit: I know he said about using azelea leaves in the desert, but he didn't mention that you can use that trick for any hot biome, and even the Nether.

I guess you could say that that house is about drive, and also about power. I would like to assume that it stays hungry, yet it devours. I like to believe that it also puts in the work AND the hours, along with taking what's ours.

Tip: If you want to make a Aither Portal in Minecraft just use barrier blocks along the front and back of the portal, put water and you have your 2012 childhood dream

With the immersive portals mod you can use a flint and steel on glass and it becomes a mirror

For number 4 use the immersive portals mod and get a real big house inside than outside

9:14 I like how the fact that it would be a wall there for us to go in if it was a REAL illusion The worst fact: it would take forever to build the nether illusion thing on the back.

9:20 there is actually a mod that allows you to go trough the portal without the loading screen and allows you to see the nether etc. Just watch a video about it its awesome. Its called "better portals" Edit: it seems like better portals is only for 1.12 but there is also a mod called immersive portals wich was the one I used but couldnt remember the name of lol. Anyways immersive portals is up to date and works on newer versions of the game as well

2:42 I once had something similar... One time it was kinda laggy on the server and when I clicked the bed, it made me do the crawling animation... I went to get my friends help but he didn't see me until I punched him so I went to get another friend's help but I couldn't go up the stairs, and a few seconds after that I teleported to my bed.
